Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The good: -Good location -decent food The bad: -pricing way inflated -the service Unlikely to go back to this place due to the pricing. $130 for 2 people to eat basic food is too much.

Amazing cocktails and pizza. Staff were friendly and service was very good. Highly recommend you book a table. We were lucky walk-ins to get seated.

Margarita Daze is such a perfect place for a relaxed, casual lunch. Stunning location, delicious & well priced food and great cocktails! The restaurant manager was extremely accomodating as we hadn’t booked a table but he made things possible on such a gorgeous day (so...I recommend booking!). Overall would highly recommend checking this venue out.More

This place lost a star for not being dog friendly in what is otherwise a very dog friendly destination. We got a takeaway pizza which was very tasty and a good size for the price. Given it’s location right on the beach it would make...a great spot for drinks as the sun sets…More

Visited this restuarant for dinner a few months ago and tasted one of the best Miso and Salmon dishes ever, and a great vib etc. Its not "fine dining" and one has to order at the counter but thats cool. The web site states "No...Bookings" and the first thing staff ask when you visit is "Have you a booking?" What the? However went there for lunch on Sunday and was seated, (chairs are a tad noisy on the wooden floors). Checked out the menu and its mostly Burgers, Pizzas and Fish and Chips for lunch. A little disappointed but lets make the most of it. Ordered the fish and chips and my family ordered burgers, we were all happy with what we were served. Fish and Chips cost $25 which I was comfortable with. Wine list a little main stream and glasses more expected at an RSL.More

Went for a birthday dinner on a Friday night. Had entrees of oysters and saltimbocca prawns. Mains of miso salmon and wagyu beef. Have to say the food was very tasty and well cooked, though it was a bit quick from entree to main for...me. The thing that really detracted was the front of house. The service was chaotic and seemed to lack the structure of a manager. People offering you dishes when you’d only just arrived and never receiving anything without the question “did you order…” So food great, but service sloppy….More

Lunch time reunion with family members up from Sydney, Nice friendly welcome from waiting staff, great busy ‘buzz’ throughout the restaurant. Good ‘’Pub food’ but cooked and presented very well , drinks and food total $165.00 , so good value for money. We will definitely...recommend and revisit ! P.S. I was involved in the Pub Restaurant business for 30 years.More

We visited today, a group of 5. We didn’t have a booking & the place was full when we arrived bar 2 reserved tables. The young woman who greeted us was genuinely invested in finding us a table which was arranged in about 5 minutes....We were lucky to get a high table on the deck. We immediately ordered drinks, jug of sangria & 2 margarita. Drinks were as described in the menu - some more ice in the sangria would have been nice. We ordered soft shell crab taco, fish & chips, oysters, chicken parmy, the burger & the best of all the szechuan squid - DELICIOUS! Every meal was yummy, chips were beautiful. The staff were lovely. Warm, friendly & engaging. The location is amazing. The only thing we wish were different is the lack of table service and the food whilst delicious is a little over priced. A great place for lunch with friends, we will visit again for special occasions.More

We left without ordering! We were a group of middle aged folk who were asked to sit under a huge TV with the rugby league on - are you a funky beach bar or an RSL? The whole room was dominated by this TV and...we were literally asked to sit under it with half the table facing the screen. We had to queue up to order our food and drinks and there was a massive queue. We don't go out to queue up for 10 minutes. Thank god we decided to make a break for it and go to Sounds on West where we had a great night! Saying all that we did manage to get our $70 deposit back, Thank you.More

We had just moved in to our new house at Umina Beach and decided to have lunch at the Margarita Daze restaurant. There is no table service so you have to wait in a queue and pay for your overpriced meal/drinks at the bar. After...paying $36 for a steak with a bit of processed potato and broccoli we tried to cut into the steak with limited success. This was the toughest steak we had ever eaten and could not even get half way through it. If we had dentures they would have landed on the plate. We complained to the staff who did not seem to care but said they would tell the Chef. The only good thing about this place is the view. Very disappointing.More
